Platycerium sp - Staghorn Fern

$ 12.00
Size

Platycerium¬†species are¬†nicknamed Staghorn Ferns (or Elkhorn Ferns) for good reason ‚Ästtheir elongated, forked fronds¬†look just like antlers. As it matures,¬†your staghorn fern will also¬†grow¬†shield fronds - round, plate-like leaves that eventually dry to form a protective layer around the roots of the plant. Staghorn ferns are epiphytes (plants that grow on other plants or trees), making them a popular choice for mounting. Whether you decide to mount your staghorn fern or grow it terrestrially in a pot, Platycerium¬†species makes an excellent houseplants that thrive in small spaces.¬†

Plant Care

‚Äʬ†Light: Place in bright, indirect light
‚Äʬ†Water:¬†Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
‚Äʬ†Considerations:¬†Staghorn ferns like high humidity and grow best in warm temperatures; mist the foliage regularly. As epiphytes, they also are good candidates for mounting. Pet friendly!

Best Purchase in a Long Time

I love my Platyceriums! I bought two plants, in case I killed one I suppose! They arrived extremely well packed, healthy and damage free with great care instructions. This is my first experience with this amazing plant and I am sure I will enjoy for a very long time. Thank you Pistils Nursery for the joy you brought me!
